minted — highlighted source code for LaTeX


minted is a LaTeX package that facilitates expressive syntax highlighting using the Pygments library. The package also provides options to customize the highlighted source code output using fancyvrb.

For instance, this code:

string title = "This is a Unicode π in the sky"
Defined as $\pi=\lim_{n\to\infty}\frac{P_n}{d}$ where $P$ is the perimeter
of an $n$-sided regular polygon circumscribing a
circle of diameter $d$.
const double pi = 3.1415926535

will produce the following rendering:


See the documentation for examples and installation instructions.


minted is distributed with both TeX Live and MiKTeX. It is also available from CTAN. In any case, Python and Pygments need to be installed separately.
